Psalms Chapter 123 – Prayer for mercy. (A Song of degrees.)

1 Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.


2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.


3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us; for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.


4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
